Summer Housing

Sign Up

Summer housing sign-up starts on April 17. The form opens at 10 am—first come, first served! Contracts must be confirmed by May 1. The form will close from May 1-May 17 to confirm and review the contracts. Students will then be able to sign up for additional weeks starting on Wednesday May 17.

The required forms to apply for summer housing are available here. You will pick your house and room assignment yourself for the weeks you sign up.


Graduating seniors and non-Smith students are not eligible for college housing. We are providing all single occupancy rooms. This means that rooms typically used as doubles throughout the academic year will have only one occupant in summer. This means no students will have a roommate for summer housing.

Payment & Fees

Click on this custom calculator to estimate your total payment. Note that this year the fee will be $159 a week. Note that this year Student Financial Services is providing a payment plan for students (see Summer Housing Email below for full details).

Your Responsibility

You are responsible for paying the full amount of your contracted time regardless of whether you stay the entire time. You may not change any weeks already contracted for, but you can add upcoming weeks through Wednesday of the preceding week. If you are unsure about your length of stay, only sign up for the minimal amount of weeks and add later.

Rooms will be inspected and damages or cleaning charges will be assessed to you. You will be billed for replacing an unreturned room key. Long-term "guests" are considered an abuse and could result in cancellation of your contract.

Move in/Move out/Key Pickup

Students must move out for any week(s) they have not signed up. Move out is noon on Sunday. This means that all of your belongings must be out of the room and the room closed and locked by this time. Move in to new rooms starts at 2 pm. You may pick up keys from 2 - 4 pm Sunday at the Clark Hall key kiosk.

Meal Plans

You must be on a meal plan. There is no longer a non-meal plan option. If you have any dietary concerns, please contact Dining Services at 413-585-2300 or dining@smith.edu.

(This information is from 2016): Dining rooms will be open for all meals May 8-May 22. Starting May 23 until August 19, the summer meal plan includes dinners Monday–Friday, plus $45 on your OneCard to purchase breakfast and lunch in the Campus Center Cafe. There are no weekend meals. The following schedule for summer dining was provided by dining services and includes the dining locations. Please contact them at 413-585-2300 if you have any questions.
